Messages & Condolences

From Nancy Backman...

To the family of Rita from Nancy Backman, I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She was my supervisor for many years in the Controller’s office. I was there when she losted her mother, granddaughter and Diana’s husband. She took it all very hard. After she left and retired, she came and saw me once, and every year she would send me a card for by birthday and wedding anniversary. She was so thoughtful. Even though I may have given her some hard times at work, she still remembered me and was kind to me.

She was a very bright lady and her children followed in her perseverance in life.

She had a long life and loved all of her children very much!

I will miss her and her yearly cards. May God bless you all.

Rita is looking down from heaven and telling you all everything is ok!
